This method is so gentle that many patients cannot believe an adjustment has actually taken place until they they notice that their discomfort has been relieved!
Atlas Orthogonal is a gentle, effective and proven Chiropractic technique that does not utilize physical manipulation.
Atlas is the top Vertebrae of the Spine and supports the head.
Orthogonal means at right angle to or square. If the Atlas is not square to the head and Spine (referred to as subluxated) then the head and spine are by necessity
out of alignment . Essentially if the head is not on straight then the Spine cannot possibly be straight. The resulting stress that ensues may cause discomfort to the Back, Shoulders, Pelvis, Hips, Knees and Ankles.
In the examples at upper right, a normal Atlas is aligned squarely with both the Spine and Skull. A misaligned or subluxated Atlas is not square.
The upper left example clearly depicts the effects of a subluxated Atlas on the
entire Skeletal frame. The resulting stress and discomfort may be felt far from the source of the real fault, This sometimes
makes an accurate medical diagnosis difficult.
